RF Sensor For Signal Monitoring Networks: N6841A RF Sensor For Signal Monitoring Networks: N6841A

Keysight Technologies, Inc. offers the N6841A RF sensor designed to provide a cost effective solution for placing a fully capable RF monitoring station where it is needed, when it is needed, for any duration of time, and without complex siting constraints or physical infrastructures. This sensor is capable of operation over a wide temperature range of -15°C to 55°C, and can withstand harsh environments without additional expensive protective enclosures.

Statistical Power Sensor: 7022 Statistical Power Sensor: 7022

A signal’s average power isn’t a sufficient enough control variable for modern day communications. It’s still an important parameter, but today’s signals typically require more diagnostic measurements. Bird’s 7022 is a statistical power sensor that uses statistical sampling techniques to measure the percentage of time the signal exists at a specific peak-to-average ratio.

Microwave USB Power Sensor (MA24106A) Microwave USB Power Sensor (MA24106A)

The MA24106A power sensor is a USB power sensor that eliminates the need of a traditional power meter. It is designed to provide accurate average power measurements from 10 MHz to 6 GHz over 60 dB of dynamic range. It is a highly accurate, standalone instrument that communicates with a PC via USB or with many of the Anritsu handheld products (often requiring Option 19). The power measurement capability of MA24106A is intended to mimic that of a traditional thermal (thermo-electric) power sensor by providing true-RMS measurements, although the MA24106A offers a wider measurement range. Therefore, it is ideal for measuring average power of CW, modulated RF waveforms such as 3G, 4G, OFDM, and multi-tone signals. True RMS power measurements enable one to make accurate measurements regardless of the input signal type.

Microwave USB Power Sensor (MA24105A) Microwave USB Power Sensor (MA24105A)

The Anritsu MA24105A Inline Peak Power Sensor is designed to take accurate average power measurements from 2 mW to 150 W and peak power measurements from 2 W  to 300 W over the frequency range of  350 MHz to 4 GHz. The sensor employs a “dual path” architecture that enables True-RMS measurements over the entire frequency and dynamic range allowing users to measure CW, multi-tone and digitally modulated signals such as LTE, LTE-TDD, GSM/EDGE, CDMA, W-CDMA, WiMAX, TD-SCDMA, WLAN, and LTE. The forward direction path also include a 4 MHz bandwidth channel that has peak and comparator/integrator circuits that add measurement functions such as PEP power, crest factor, CCDF, and burst average power. Another detection circuit on the reverse direction adds reverse power measurement capabilities including reverse power, reflection coefficient (magnitude), return-loss, and SWR. The presence of a micro-controller along with signal conditioning circuitry, ADC, and power supply in the sensor makes it a complete miniature power meter.
